New Jersey State Police MuseumUnfortunately, I was unable to partake in the field trip to the New Jersey State Police Museum and Learning Center. However I was able to read up on the history and attractions available at this museum in West Trenton.In the past, Troopers patrolled on horseback and motorcycle. At the museum there is a restored log cabin from 1934 and two Harley Davidson motorcycles and a 1930 Buick Touring car that were used on patrol.

In 1934, Bruno Richard Hauptmann was arrested for the murder of Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. The "Trial of the Century" began in 1935, and resulted in his conviction and execution. At the Museum, some of the actual evidence is on display. Original newsreel footage from 1935 can be viewed, as well as other videotapes. The criminal investigation reports and trial documents can be procured by researchers.Over one hundred seized weapons are on display from the collection of the New Jersey State Police Ballistics Unit. The display shows wide variety of weapons collected during investigations. The Weaponry includes everything from a small .22 caliber Derringer up to a 20mm anti-tank gun. An attraction I am much bummed that I missed is the crime scene. You are able to search a crime scene for evidence and help the detective solve the crime. You can analyze bullets and fibers under a microscope. And see what your fingerprints look like. Troop cars are available so you can sit in the Trooper's seat in a present day troop car; listen to actual radio communications while lights flash above.The legacy was started on March 29, 1921, when legislation signed to create the New Jersey State Police. On July 1, 1921, Governor Edwards appointed Colonel H. Norman Schwarzkopf to be the first Superintendent of the State Police. The Legacy he began still holds true today. Devotion to our code: "Honor, Duty, and Fidelity." Even though I was unable to make the trip, I look forward to visiting the museum in the near future.
